is not on the obama administration's side either. no prior administration, republican or democrat, has ever attempted to waive the work requirements in the 16 years between the law's enactment and the july, 2012, information memorandum. following the july, 2012, action, the government accountability office looked into this and, quote, did not find any evidence that h.h.s. stated it has authority to issue waivers related to tanf work requirements, end quote. in short, no administration attempted to waive the work requirements because they knew it was illegal to do so. and finally, if we need more evidence that despite their promises to the contrary, the administration's policy would weaken the work requirement, we need look no further than the nonpartisan congressional budget office. this states $61 million over 10 years, because c.b.o. recognizes the administration's waivers will allow some states that will otherwise pay penalties failing to meet the work requirement. in addition to -- the legislation before us extends the tanf program's authorization at current funding levels through the remainder o
, it prohibits the obama administration from carrying out the benefits of implementing the administrati administrative logistics that are necessary to provide the benefits of what they call obama care, but it takes all of the revenue that comes in. all of the revenue ryan takes credit for then he cuts out the benefits trying to ensure it doesn't work. does something similar are dodd/frank, and, of course, it's more benefits for the wealthy and with deeper cuts for the poor who need it and less investment in america. i hope that enough of the american people are watching this debate so that they continue to realize that the middle is where president obama is and i think the vast majority of democrats and hopefully, you know, we can get some republicans to come onboard. but when you have these cpac conferences and you see mr. cantor just kowtowing to their agenda, the prospects are not bright. >> congressman jim moran, sir. thank you very much for joining us this friday. >> sure. >> stay with us. we have much more ahead.

, republicans hate the bureau the obama administration created to protect consumers from abuse by financial institutions. republicans refused to confirm the president's first fully qualified choice to lead the bureau, elizabeth warren, and now 43 republican senators are pledging to block confirmation of richard cordray, unless democrats agree to dramatically cut the agency's authority. today, he had his confirmation hearing in front of the senate banking committee, including its new member, the now senior senator from massachusetts, elizabeth warren. >> i think the delay in getting him confirmed is bad for consumers, it's bad for small banks, it's bad for credit unions, it's bad for anyone trying to offer an honest product in an honest market. the american people deserve a congress that worries less about helping big banks and more about helping regular people who've been cheated on mortgages, on credit cards, on student loans, on credit reports. i hope you get confirmed. you have earned it, director cordray. ♪ [ male announcer ] how could switchgrass in argentina, change engineering in d

on a politically charged bill that would block the obama administration from waving any work requirements to receive welfare. the house republicans accuse the president of trying to gut the work requirement that was passed back in 1996. the white house says that requirement creates bureaucratic hurdles for states in placing welfare recipients. to the american southwest new concerns over securing our southern border there as spending changes in washington are expected to reduce border patrolman power. meanwhile there is new attention on the technology that will be put on the front lines there. william la jeunesse has seen it firsthand at the border security expo in phoenix, arizona. william, good morning, there. >> reporter: bill, as you know a lot of the border is very rugged, it's mountains, canyons, of course the rio grand. you cannot build a physical fence there. the border patrol relies on a series of ground sensors to detect people coming in but also long-range cameras like this one that can see day and in it to tell them where illegals are and where they are going. >> the product is

sequestration gave the obama administration a political reason to release deportable aliens. surely otherle budgetary considerations could have come first such as cutting conferences or detailees or travel. releasing illegal immigrants ves them little incentive to report themselves. many will become fugitives. further more, the director has indicated that i.c.e. has had to reapprehend four out of the 10 of the illegal immigrant for more severe crimes. to make matters worse, many of these individuals released lack the money, family, support, and the ability to get a job. not just because they are present in violation of the law but because they have a criminal record. this is a ultimately, the nonsensical action demonstrates the inability and a lack of desire on behalf of the administration to enforce the law, even against illegal immigrants convicted of serious crimes. to make matters worse, they undermine the goodwill necessary to develop a common sense, step- by-step approach to improving our immigration laws. pleasureime, it is my to recognize the ranking member of the committee, the gen
] and what have we seen from the obama administration? the obama administration is sending the worst signal to the ayatollahs, at a most critical time. we talk, they enrich. they don't take us seriously. and this leading from behind strategy, it isn't working. think about the message that we are sending. in iraq, the president ignores the advice of his commanders, his own commanders, and rushed to the exit. and what was the result? al qaeda is making a comeback in iraq. and iran has become an important player in iraq. in syria, we sat on the sidelines while over 70,000 syrians were slaughtered. seeding our policy to the vetoes of the russians and the chinese and the united nations to a bunch of united nations bureaucrats. [booing] and in afghanistan, the president has undercut his commanders time and time again. in libya, the administration again lead from behind, and never took steps to secure gadhafi's weapons stash. and do you know where those weapons are now? they are in the hands of islamic radicals in mali, egypt, and syria, used by terrorists to harm us and our allies. and this admin
away from the all-time high that we reached yesterday at the close. the obama administration was required by law to submit a budget. february the 4th, got to do it. nine weeks later, the president still has not handed out even an outline of a budget. in fact, the president has only met a deadline once. so has a law been broken? the judge will join us at 10:35 on that one. then we've got facebook and privacy. according to a new study, your likes on facebook could reveal your tendency to use illegal drugs even your political party, even though you haven't explicitly said all of this. by the way, facebook owns that information. dr. keith ablow is not happy about it and he will be here at 10:26 this morning. facebook is down big this morning. netflix is teaming up with facebook. now you will be able to watch your netflix movies while logged on to facebook. that's how you get into netflix. nicole, the netflix stock first? nicole: take a look here at netflix right now is a winner. it's been a winner all morning. year to date up almost 100% in 2013 alone. gaining 3.3% at the moment.
prosperity of their own families and of our own nation. under the obama administration, u.s. public debt is a percent -- as a percentage of g.d.p. is over 70% and growing. we've seen european nations, there appears to be a tipping point on the debt to g.d.p. ratio. and our current rate, we're nearing dangerous territory. the reverse currency status of the dollar and our rank among world economies will only carry us for so long. so what affect does this level of debt have on the economy and its citizens when things go south? all you have to do is look around like -- at countries like cyprus, spain, greece. in the case of greece you'll see a depressed environment where the unemployment rate is over 26%, severe austerity cuts and overhauls of gutted worker benefits, safety net programs, harming seniors and the country's poorest populous, taxes on families an businesses have increased at a sharp rate and violent social unrest has become common place. most recently we've seen a proposal to bail out cyprus banks that could raid the savings account of its own population. these are the realities

of immigration reform, the current debate, is employers will be held accountable. the obama administration had actually been enforcing the immigration laws, has been directorate number of audits and still the workplace audits as well. and holding employers accountable more than any previous administration. the legislation -- in order for it to function, there have to be take components. people need to be brought out of the shadows and allowed to apply for earned his citizenship and secondly, employers need to be held accountable, particularly from labor law violations. if employers know they can hire and exploit workers then get away with that, they will continue to do so even after we have immigration reform. labor law protection as a major component of enforcement of the laws is an extremely important deterrent to future unlawful immigration. host: story from politico earlier this month. senate stop on lower skilled workers. -- stuck on low-skilled workers. talk about this effort. guest: the issue of any future immigrants who come on employment-based visas is but that the fault line. chamber

? you mean we have to get up on something, mr. president? another senior administration official said that president obama will be very pragmatic and that scares me. he says president obama is willing to change the formula for how benefits under social security, medicare and other programs are calculated, change cpi in exchange for higher taxes? keep in mind the senator, this senator made a big slash filibustering 13 hours over an issue answered with one sentence f. the big three are threatened by a grand bargain. get your phones out. tonight's question. do you want bernie sanders, the senator, independent from vermont, to filibuster to protect the big three? text a for yes. b for you to 67622. you can go to our blog and we'll bring you the results later in the show. i'm already starting to get the feeling i've got a very unpopular position here that we should protect the big three at all costs because that's what this election was all about. it's about making the wealthiest americans pay more, but to get them to pay more, we have to cut into the middle class and elderly who didn't ca
